    Discraft Ace Race-Worlds Largest!-Dalaiwood September 10th

    Yip-Whoa-Hey it is that time again to throw with reckless abandon at baskets that are waaaaay too close to the teepad. Yes, the Discraft Ace Race is back and will be happening again at Dalaiwood on September 10th. For at least four years now we have been the LARGEST Ace Race in the world with our last two years clocking in at over 200 participants. With the smack that was being tossed around last year from the Texas boys soundly put down we retained our title. However, when you are the champ, the target just gets bigger. This year not only are there noises coming form Texas again, but we have Florida, North Carolina and Kansas trying to make a move on us. So let's show the world what disc golf fun is all about and crush the 300 player barrier this year!

    But you're saying that you have never been to an Ace Race? What is and Ace Race? It is the coolest non-tournament fun event that you will ever attend. For your totally small entry fee of $25 you will receive two brand new, never released prototype golf discs, a supercolor mini commemorating the event and a "Weekender" disc golf bag from Discraft. Just to let you know, these bags are cool and the perfect thing for that casual round with friends. So this is basically $50 worth of stuff for just entering, Oh yeah, if you are on of the first 100 to enter you get a DYED disc as one of your discs in the package. This is an exclusive and we are the only Ace Race to offer this added coolness.

    Now you are asking, "So then what?". Well, now you get to throw two rounds of Ace Racing. That means you step up to the tee and throw with no other thought than acing that basket. After your throw, you pick up your disc (hopefully out of the basket) and move on to the next hole. Repeat for 17 more holes. then do it again for a total of 36 ace runs. Keep track of your aces and metal hits. Most aces wins! I know, you're saying you have never had an ace and this is just for good players. Untrue I say!! First off, the course is a totally shortened version of our A course and this has to be THE most aceable course in the world. Not to mention that you will have a chance to throw at the easiest basket to ace in the world, the Golden Basket, and we may even have other tricks in store.

    Bottom line, it is a blast and a good time for all skills and ages. Also, we will have other side games for prizes going on that you may enter for free. We will also have a 9 hole mini golf course set up for your enjoyment. You will get to play at you convenience and can even visit our other courses in the area between or after your rounds. What a great opportunity to practice for "Whiners in the Woods" while having a blast at the Ace Race.

    So to find out more and download a registration flyer visit us at www.dalaiwood.com/ace_race.htm to get all the info you may need. We can also take your info and credit card registration over the phone if you contact us at (253) 853-1914.

    Hope to see you out there, bring a few friends and turn them on to the most fun you can have in Disc Golf!

    Thanks,
    Scott Papa

    Well, the dust has finally started to settle and things are getting slightly back to abnormal. When it was all said and done, the final tally came in at a whopping 309 players! This is now the largest Ace Race in history and also the largest one day event ever held in the Northwest. To all that came out we give you a hearty round of applause!

    As for more of the final results:

    Ace Race winner-Brian C Smith with 2 aces and 5 metal hits
    Runner up-Kenny Benjamin with 2 aces and 1 metal hit
    Other aces-Dana Etienne,Tim Douglas, Russ Joy, Dijen Buckendorf, Josh Shutes, Tod Masbruch, Ryan Pozzuto, Jered Martin, Steve Chavez, Chris "Sumo" Blancato, Thomas Redenbaugh, Larry Nygaro, and Scott Papa
    First and Youngest Ace-Chris "Sumo" Blancato
    Oldest Ace-Tod Masbruch
    Longest Ace-Ryan Pozzuto (221')
    Mini Golf-Jason Lydy -7
    Furious Five-Hugh Everett -3
    Easy Putting Contest-Tony Adams 35
    Hard Putting Contest-Wayne Whitney 24
    Half Mile Hole-Brian Smith 11

    The video teaser has been uploaded to Youtube but as of me writing this it has not been published yet. Keep searching for Dalaiwood Ace Race and you should see it soon as it is just waiting for them to post it.

    I would like to thank all of our great volunteers that made this event happen. There is no way that you process 140 players in one hour without tons of help. Thanks, thanks, thanks. A super huge special shout out of course goes to my wife, Jeanne, who has to put up with this crazy obsession of wanting to throw the largest disc golf event in the world. Without her help then nothing gets done. With the addition of phone in pre-reg payments added this year her workload went crazy. Add to that the wonder of the walking tacos (35 pounds of meat, 20 pounds of cheese and way too many onions to even thing about) and three slightly crazy kids and she definitely wins the award for most help ever. My hero forever.....

    But again, we thank all that came out and made it such a success. Keep watching for more videos and we hope to see you all (plus your friends that missed out) next year.

    Later,
    Scott Papa

    My wife and I just returned home from the Ace Race. Thank you to everyone that helped make this event happen. We had a great time! Also, thank you to those guys in our group that helped us out with grabbing discs while we pushed our baby around in the off-roading stroller.

    It was nice to meet you, Scott and Jeanne. Baby Olive says hi. We'll definitely be back for next year's Ace Race and also just to play the course. Dalaiwood is an awesome property.

    So here it is. Just about 24 hours before we unleash the masses on the Ace Race course at Dalaiwood and it is looking awesome. The course is in great shape, the packages are here and waiting for the players and the excitement is at an all time high.

    I just confirmed with boys at the factory and we are not only on track to be the largest in the world, again, we are on track to blow them all away!!! As of today, the largest one has been in Largo, Florida at 140 players. As of last night we already have 170 prepaid entrants. You guys and gals all rock!

    The great news is that we are not done yet by a long shot. For all of you that are coming, bring a friend or tell more to come. We will have plenty of packages for day of walk ups so we will not disappoint you. Hey, the more the merrier and at this point it looks pretty amazingly merry. We are really striving to make this an event that the WORLD of disc golf will be talking about for a looooong time.

    So come on out, throw some aces, play some free side games for the chance to win prizes, watch (or challenge) our west side big guns in the distance driveathon, and come be a part of the coolest video that will ever be seen. Yep, we will be filming all day so make sure that you are ready to have a blast in front of the camera...

    Again, thank you all and we will see you tomorrow.

    Scott Papa

    Oh yeah, if you get there by 9AM you will probably finish by 10:30. You'll still have time for some side games and to troll the pro shop! Get out here, great fun as always!

    The time is rolling on and the event is getting closer and closer. I would like to thank everyone who has sent in their registration, come by the shop and registered or called in and registered over the phone as we are now over 110 players already! So while the first 100 lucky folks are getting the dyed disc, their is still a good reason to get your pre reg in---we want you to get a package!

    That's right, we want to make sure we are going to have enough for everyone and that includes the walk ups on the day of the event. It is always hard to guess just how many folks are gong to show day of so if you want to make sure that a package has your name on it, then pleas send in your entry so that we make sure to have enough on hand for all.

    So come on out and get ready to have a blast. If you haven't been out here before, it's worth the trip just to paw through the biggest selection of discs you've ever seen! That's right, Hyzer Farm, the pro shop at Dalaiwood, is the place to go for your disc needs and we are more flush than ever with plastic from around the world. Not to mention we will have a bunch of new dyes for you to get your groove on with....

    Also, this year after the big group photo and mini driving contest, we will have a demo with our big guns throwing from our hole 2 tee pad in a nice display of pure power. Want to see if you can out throw them? Then come on out and give it a shot!

    Thanks for your time and I will talk to you again soon!

    Scott Papa
